USDA Inspection Report: 27 Apr 2011

Code: 04C04
Violation: 381.1(iii)_Adulterated, 381.145

Citation: At approximately 1435 hours, while performing a scheduled 01C02 procedure task I observed the following in the Southwest corner of the Cooler; one plastic edible basket stored on the storage rack containing approximately 30 lbs. of duck legs and 10 lbs. of duck breasts to be further processed are emitting a foul odorous smell, are tacky/ slimy to the touch and are off-condition. One basket of duck legs and duck breasts, approximately 40 lbs. retained with US Retained tag# 39718897. This is a failure to meet: 9CFR 381.1(iii) and 9CFR 381.145(b). I immediately notified HACCP Coordinator, [redacted] and Production Supervisor, [redacted] verbally of the non-compliance. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


381.1(iii) Adulterated ‘‘Adulterated’’ applies to any poultry product under one or more of the following circumstances: If it consists in whole or in part of any filthy, putrid, or decomposed substance or is for any other reason unsound, unhealthful, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food;

381.145(b) All poultry products and all carcasses, parts thereof, meat and meat food products of cattle, sheep, swine, goats, or equines which enter any official establishment shall be identified by the operator of the official establishment at the time of receipt at the official establishment. All poultry products, and all carcasses, parts thereof, meat and meat food products of such animals, which are processed or otherwise handled at any official establishment shall be subject to examination by an inspector at the official establishment in such manner and at such times as may be deemed necessary by the inspector in charge to assure compliance with the regulations. Upon such examination, if any such article or portion thereof is found to be adulterated, such article or portion shall, in the case of poultry products, be condemned and disposed of as prescribed in § 381.95, unless by reprocessing they may be made not adulterated, and shall, in the case of such other articles be disposed of according to applicable law.
